This originally started out as a streaming pc only (using a One X and an Elgato hd60s), with the ocassional youtube render or animation render.

But as we probably all eventually find out, it became so much more.

This was originally packaged in a thermaltake versa N24 case and the MSI core frozr L cpu cooler, and it was originally only 16gb of ram and a gtx 960 FTW.

Over the last couple of months, I started with changing the case.

We're now running a Corsair Carbide Spec-omega in white (which presented me with fan cooling problems that didnt exist in the thermaltake).

So with that came the upgrade from the core frozr to the Corsair H100 Platinum SE (for the All white RGB to match)

We then loaded in 16more gb of Gskill Trident RGB ddr4 3200mhz ram

The last piece was to finally upgrade from the gtx 960 FTW i was running, so we managed to find an Asus ROG Strix 1080TO 11gb (used in great condition, no artifcating and crushing benchmark tests) for 400 bux.

and for good measure threw in a thermaltake riing12 kit.

All in all, I would prefer the thermaltake N24 case for cable management options (in the corsair it is absolutely awful).

But other than that the aesthetic of this build is lightyears beyond what it originally looked like, and the full glass wall as opposed to a window is breathtaking.
